Leveraging the EQT platform in the public market

The EQT Public Value (PV) investment strategy seeks to identify investments in public companies with strong market positions, an engaged management team and significant potential for top-line and earnings growth. EQT Public Value focuses on mid-cap companies.

EQT take a hands-on approach and seeks to act a catalyst of change with a full potential mindset and high sense of urgency. Shareholder engagement is a component of the PV strategy that seeks to work closely with existing corporate bodies such as boards to help the companies reach their full potential and deliver attractive and sustainable shareholder return. 

The investment strategy of EQT Public Value leverages the same investment and value creation “toolbox” as EQT’s buyout strategies. This approach is based on a rigorous due diligence-focused approach and the utilization of the deep knowledge and resources available throughout the EQT platform, including:

  • Institutional knowledge gained over 20+ years of investing in the equity and debt of businesses across the globe. 

  • A network of over 500 core Industrial Advisors, who are used extensively throughout the due diligence process.

  • Over 540 employees operating in 14 countries on three continents, providing deep local knowledge that can only be provided by having “feet on the street” and five industry advisory teams providing sector-specific expertise.

Being an EQT Public Value portfolio company also gives access to EQT’s in-house digital and sustainability advisory teams.
